The study was conducted on 784 students aged 14 to 17 (383 male students and 401 female students), who were randomly selected, in Son La province. Following the standards of morphological and anthropological studies, this study aims to investigate AQ and find out the correlation between AQ and the fingerprint patterns of these teenagers. The results show that the average AQ of 14-17 year-old students is 118.26 points, with an annual increase of about 3.55 per year. The highest average AQ goes to the Kinh male students with 123.21 points, whereas the lowest goes to the H'Mong male students (110.34 points). For female students, the highest average AQ is of Kinh ethnic group with 123.5 points while the lowest is for those of Thai ethnic group with 117.57 points. The pearson correlation value between AQ and fingerprint patterns where LU is -0.02, LR is -0.09, WC is -0.01, WS is -0.01 and Wcp is -0.02 is a negative correlation with a weak correlation value. On the contrary, the pearson correlation value between AQ and the remaining fingerprints where AS is 0.06, AT is 0.05 and Wdl is 0.05 is a positive correlation but it is still a weak correlation value.
